The Leica CL is an intuitive camera with a built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder and all essential controls conveniently located on its top plate, designed to be used with L-mount lenses. Atop the camera are two dials, with customizable buttons in each center, for setting the aperture, shutter speed, ISO value, exposure compensation and shooting mode – making it convenient for the
photographer to take pictures without taking their eye away from the viewfinder. An additional display on the top plate instantly provides all relevant photographic settings at a glance. The user has total control at their fingertips when taking pictures with the Leica CL, and the perfectly tuned pressure point of the shutter release brings it all together with a satisfying haptic click.
The expansive range of TL lenses and accessories such as the M-Adapter L, R-Adapter L, flashes, straps and camera protector options all enhance the shooting experience with the Leica CL while providing the user with more options for creativity. To coincide with the launch of this new camera, Leica Camera is expanding its portfolio of TL lenses with the introduction of the Leica Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 ASPH, the smallest wide-angle APS pancake lens in the market, in black or silver anodized.

With integrated Wi-Fi, the Leica CL allows photographers to shoot and share pictures and video via their smartphones on the go. With its wireless transfer, the Leica CL makes it possible to send pictures directly from the camera to a smart device, where it can then be sent to family and friends or shared to social media. For iOS and Android devices, this is possible by downloading the free Leica CL app. The camera also has a web server function, allowing wireless image downloading from any desktop or mobile internet browser.
LEICA CL - REMOTE FUNCTION
The remote function of the Leica CL app allows the user to connect a smartphone or tablet to the camera wirelessly and use it as a remote electronic viewfinder for the Leica CL. This allows the user to set the shutter speed, aperture and activate the shutter release remotely. This added versatility is incredibly helpful for self-timer shots, group portraits and shooting from unusual angles or from a tripod.

There are now 7 lenses in the TL lens portfolio – 4 primes and 3 zooms – in a wide range of focal lengths and aperture speeds. In addition, Leica M and R lenses can be used on the Leica CL with an adaptor and the aid of focus peaking.
